Since dwarves got the majority vote, I thought I’d kick things off with a lovely Wildhammer lady. :3
“Startin’ ta see de merit in dwarf ladies, yesss.”
Dwarven women, are beautiful lovers
Dwarven women, they understand
I’ve been around some, and I have discovered
That dwarven women know just how to please a man.
Everybody seems to love those human women
Buck eighteen on up to twenty-five
Well I love ‘em too, but I’m tellin’ you
Dwarves know to really love, and boy it sure is fine
So baby don’t you worry about growin’ whiskers
Those elven girls ain’t got nothin’ on you
Cause it takes some whiskey, to get ‘em frisky
And frisky dwarves may just be the ones to teach ‘em a thing or two.(Chorus)
You mean the generation that paid three times as much for college to enter a job market with triple the unemployment isn’t interested in purchasing the assets of the generation who just blew an enormous housing bubble and kept it from popping through quantitative easing and out-and-out federal support? Curious.
Gonna quickly throw in an epic quote I found on this article.
KJKJ: Gene Roddenberry, with balls of brass, got up on national tv and said, “hey people, if a geneticist took all the best DNA from planet Earth and put it together to make the best human the world has ever seen - he wouldn’t be a white guy.”
This is why I find the casting of a white actor in this role to be so repugnant. They are not whitewashing an Asian role, they are saying that the best genetic material that the entirety of this world and it’s diversity has to offer….still comes from a white guy.
Reblogging again for that
It is a part of mankind to play games. We played in the Stone Age. We played in Roman times. It’s an escape from the everyday grind. Every day we work hard and we make mistakes and we are punished for those mistakes. Games take us to another role where you can make mistakes and you don’t get punished for them. You can always start another game.
This is what I don’t get - Women are impure because males have touched them. Who’s the dirty one here?

Gutters on Female Comic Creators
I woke up this morning to find many messages from readers telling me to check out the Gutters. Today’s comic, written by the always amazing Jill Pantozzi with art by Amy Mebberson, addresses an issue pretty near to my heart. And, of course, the comments have the usual cast of idiots.
Willis is right, but you know what?
I kinda hope Sue is white as fucking snow in this picture. And I want them to joke about growing up together. About her being his big sister. And her being protective of her little brother. And making fun of each other with ease and familiarity “That one time you put a pine cone up your nose” “I WAS FIVE!”
And I never want them to mention that they’re a different race. Because it doesn’t fucking matter, because they’re family.
(I realize there’s a great counter-argument to be made for Sue Storm also being black; roles for WoC, interracial marriage between her and Reed, etc., and it’s certainly a valid one to make. Just that moment of “That would be awesome” occurred to me.)
